Witty people have higher IQs. Funny people are born looking like Joe Pesci from Good Fellas.

Evolutionary psychologists describe

Oh man, this thread is going to be great.  One by one, in the absence of genius wit, the less intelligent members of Fark will dispense their hatred and fury for evolutionary psychology, and their status as beta males will be confirmed.

On the other hand, I will dispense the cutting-edge jokes, including the one time where the chicken crossed the road.  But do not worry, fellow Farkers!  It safely emerged on the other side of the road, thereby signaling to potential mates that its genes are fit for propagation.

I will discuss this in further detail in my upcoming e-Book, Why Women Refuse to Have Sex With Me.  Spoiler: It's because they cannot handle my additional Pylons.

Humor  and IQ are based on the same thing recognizing patterns and multiply thought processes.

Examble, simple IQ question if a bat cost a dollar more than a ball and together they're $1.10, how much is the ball?

Regular thought process will say 10 cents as that's what just the numbers give you, but since it has the word more the answer becomes 5 cents. It's only solved by thinking different.

Humor is based on two thing observation and misdirection. An example is the old Groucho Marx joke "one morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know" it sets a scene where the listener things one thing to only have it replaced with something ridiculous.

Both thing rely on the person's  ability to see both the standard thought process and the secondary thought process.

There's a reason there are very few funny Republican comedians.

I would argue true satire is one of the most intellectually demanding forms of humour, and it almost invariably tends to be the domain of people with a progressive mindset.

Something something, correlation. Something something, causation. Also, a joke to make myself feel like a brilliant man, because I sure didn't win the genetic lottery any other way.

Man, there is nothing sadder than watching a fat man weep. Except being the fat man, of course.

 Making obscure links to find the humorous coincidences between them requires a good memory.  I'm not sure that that's directly related to intelligence but, being able to remember two references from different things that people will find funny is both a developed skill and an innate ability.  The best comedy, to me, are the jokes you have to think about.  An ignorant person wouldn't necessarily understand some jokes i find funny.  (Just as I completely miss the humor in pop culture references to shows/movies i haven't seen)

So, does that mean if one of my Fark comments gets a lot of funny votes, and one gets a lot of smart votes, the funny comment is smarter than the smart comment?
